Public Library Summer Reading Rules

Library Summer Reading Flyer

Summer Reading

Each student is asked to read one book of their choice, one grade-level text, and one schoolwide book selection.


We collaborate with the Oldham County Public Library for summer reading, which is why their flyer is attached.


Book of choice - Students are encouraged to choose a book that is on their grade level that interests them. If they need recommendations, the Oldham County Public Library can help with that.


Grade-Level Text - Students are encouraged to read the text suggested by their grade-level teachers (listed below).

Incoming 6th grade - Holes by Louis Sachar

Incoming 7th grade - Restart by Gordon Korman

Incoming 8th grade - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


School-wide Book - At EOMS, we choose one book to give our staff and students common language and move us forward as a school. This year, our "One School, One Book" text is Before the Ever After by Jacqueline Woodson.
